    Jan 25, 2011, 11:03 PM - Nerf Gun Props? YES! #1

    Hope you guys enjoy the stuff I do. I have a 7 year old so they idea to work on nerf guns just occured to me about 6 months ago. I now have a shop where I work on orders and projects - usually about 5-7 hours a day after work and on weekends. It's never going to make me rich, but if it provides me a fun hobby and some extra cash for the family, I'm a happy man


    just a little .99 cent toy grenade. I liked the cast and thought it would look cool painted up!

    WIP - Boba Fett blaster by hasbro 3/4 scale (I need a source for full sized replica casts!)

    Previous Fett blaster I did a while back

    Gasparilla Pirate Fest is coming up this weekend in Tampa. Had to make a few pistols for the event! (Cast resin, no metal)

    Standard issue Stormtrooper Blaster - Hasbro 3/4 scale

    Yes please! I love seeing other styles on these nerfs I'll try to dig up a few of the ones I've done. you might like what I did with the ugly shield that comes with the automatic stampede


    This was at about 60% done. Cant find the final photos!


    Further back in the project, but a better shot of the shield. Yep, I melted a bullet hole in it, hehe.

    Here are a couple of longshots that I did.
    The first one, I didn't really mod too much, however I did body fill every screw hole, and logo.
    Sanded the heck out of the entire thing, and painted it.
    The second one I had a lot of fun with.
    I didn't worry too much about smooth surfaces as I wanted it to look really beat up.

    Great paint jobs! Looks much better than most of the Nerf paint-ups I see.

    Exceptional work! I've got a box full of guns (for the grandson of course!) waiting for the time to paint.
    Could you do a tutorial on the weathering you do? It's kick-ass!!

    Great paint jobs! I especially like the last pic in your first thread that shows the effect from gas escaping the vents. Have you left the screw holes unfilled in order to reassemble after painting?

    I love the nerf stuff. I was eyeing the longshot sniper rifle the other day but 40.00 is a bit much right now. These look amazing.

    Fantastic work JA, I've dabbled in these too. If you have a Goodwill Clearance Center near you they're the absolute best source I've found for base. Apparently the regular Goodwill stores won't carry any firearm related toys so they all end up in the clearance centers. In the last year I've picked up:

    Longshot - $1 (missing the clip)
    3 Mavericks - $1 each
    Nite Finder - $1
    Firefly - $1

    tons of off-brand guns, and a giant laser tag gun for $2. Most of them are in near perfect condition except that they're missing the darts (which I don't use anyway). They have tons of fodder too. I'm probably going to do a barricade next or one of these:

    The clearance center here is the main distribution center so they have all the good stuff and ship the crap to the local shops lol. if it wasn't an hour away i'd hit it up.
